My kids. [smiles] Ages 10, 8 and 4 and my businesses.

I don’t have any but I absolutely love them.

What three clothing items can’t you live without?

Comfy pants, flannels and converse. 

What is your dream job?

I have it. [smiles] I run women’s empowerment groups, am a health coach and competition coach. I get to help others change their lives, go after their goals and live their best lives.

What do you do to stay in shape, or are you just a genetic freak?

I have to work very hard to stay in shape. My body doesn’t naturally burn a ton of calories, so cardio is a priority and then of course lifting heavy.


  • Favorite Color: Red.
  • Favorite Food: ALL, but I am a huge sushi fan.
  • Dream Car: I just bought a Jeep Wrangler this year and it is so fun! I think I may want to eventually get something bigger though as a second car better for kids. Maybe a blacked out Tahoe.

  • Favorite part of your body? My eyes.
  • Favorite part of a man’s body? His smile.
  • Bars, clubs, both or none? Sports bars or country bars I am a sucker for.

  • Favorite city/country to party in: I live on the west coast and love it here. I love being in nature and we have lots of it here. But Foresthill, CA specifically has my heart.
